A benefits package that you’ll love
With our current situation meaning that many people are home alone and may need a little extra support, care, love or fun, this affordable benenfits package is a superb way to raise happiness and wellbeing levels. Honestly – as you hopefully know by now – I would never promote anything I didn’t truly believe in.
Historically, benefits packages through work have only been available to employees of businesses, meaning that self employed or contract workers didn’t get access to them. Until now…
In 2018, the founders of pirkx identified a gap in the market in their search for an affordable wellbeing benefits solution for their team of self- employed subcontractors, who were not eligible for a traditional employee benefits package. Frustrated by the lack of viable options, they set out to create their own solution and pirkx was born!
The team at Pirkx say:
We believe everyone should have access to tools that support their wellbeing (which is the state of being happy, healthy or comfortable). Large employers often provide a range of ‘Employee Benefits’ to support the wellbeing of their workforce. However, the contingent workforce – contractors, the gig economy and even employees of SME businesses often have little or no access to these benefits. This is due to ineligibility, complex on-boarding processes or high cost. pirkx aims to solves these issues by providing benefits for everyone at a low cost, via a simple, easy to use, self-service platform.
The pirkx proposition was built around our Five Pillars of Wellbeing: Health, Wealth, Reward & Recognition, Learning and Social. Our goal is to be a one-stop shop of wellbeing tools to improve the lives of our members and their families. The Benefits on offer (UK) include:
- 24/7 GP helpline
- 24/7 Dedicated telephone counselling service
- Free eye test and discounts on lenses, glasses and laser eye surgery
- Guidance on money management
- Discounts on big brand shopping, cinema tickets, holidays, plus loads more
- Discounted gym memberships & virtual gym classes for all abilities
- Free monthly pirkx lotto entries and competitions
pirkx is priced to be accessible to all, and with payment options to suit businesses of any size. Companies or individuals can buy an annual license and pay for this either monthly, quarterly or annually.
The unique way in which pirkx is built means businesses can choose who to pay for, or simply give access to their workforce or clients on a self‐pay basis. Annual membership is £45 inc VAT per person, per year – less than £1 a week!
